    On large plate, mix coating ingredients. Roll each roll of dough in coating (reserve any remaining coating). Rewrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 hours longer.
  • 4
    Heat oven to 375°F. Cut each roll into 1/4-inch slices. On ungreased cookie sheet, place slices about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle with remaining coating.

Expert Tips

  • Serve these delicious morsels with vanilla or chocolate ice cream, or package them up with coffee mugs and freshly ground coffee for a gift that any coffee lover will enjoy.
  • To keep your cookies nice and round, rotate the roll frequently while you're slicing. This will keep you from flattening one side.
